7.2 volts is ok if it is hot motor. It is 12 volts cold.
I would look at the points and condenser. Gap the points at.018.

No matter what, you need to verify the module is working simply by using a test light on the negative of the coil to see if the module is commanding the coil to fire.

The negative gives me nothing at any time the only time I get anything is when I hit the positive and thats where the 7.2 comes from

Is it a flashing signal? If it is not flashing, the ignition module may be a fault. If it is flashing, the coil may have failed.

This is assuming there is a spark issue.
